From an astrological point of view, a Solar Eclipse is all about new beginnings and making a fresh start in your life, so it seems only fitting that an awakening of some kind would be part of this process.
According to Native American Shamans, a Solar Eclipse represents a powerful time of healing. The alignment of the Sun, Moon, and Earth represents the dissolving of differences and the coming together as One.
During a Solar Eclipse, emotional wounds can be healed and stronger relationships can be forged. This can then bring about a mutual understanding and can help the world to unite in love and harmony, rather than being in opposition.
When it comes to cosmic events like this Solar Eclipse, intention is everything so follow your own instincts and see what resonates and comes up for you. Around Solar Eclipses, you may witness people around you going through lots of changes and new beginnings. You may even notice this in your own life too.
Selenite is the perfect crystal to work with during a new moon as it promotes clarity, joy, beauty, and higher realm connection. It also magnifies wealth and influence. The Greeks named selenite after the moon goddess Selene, who has the power to awaken intuition and bring psychic visions and vivid dreams. It’s especially powerful under the full moon and holds a vibration of ceremony and wisdom. Selenite also helps you fall and stay asleep, bringing peaceful sleep. Selenite is fragile – be careful not to get it wet – but it is quite strong, which makes it similar to us as spiritual beings, tender and yet strong in our own ways.
